Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
The problem is quite similar to this one:
The difference is: MY PC starts but it takes very ver long while starting with the drive conncected via FireWire! Normaly the "Windows Starting BAr" runs about 5-7 times until XP is loaded.
When the Drive is connected is takes about 25-27 times !!!!
Exactly the same issue on my Laptop!
I already installed a bios update and the microsoft FW-Patches --> no change!
When the Drive is connected via USB or plugged in after XP has started it works absolutely fine!
However I want to use FW and dont want to remove the plug everytime a start the PC.
Hope there is a sollution!
I'm afraid this does not help!
